Producer’s Notes:
 
A cognac made from a vineyard influenced by the maritime climate of the Atlantic Ocean, worked by a young wine grower located in the village of St Pierre d'Oléron, on the Island of Oléron. This island benefits from the influence of the Golf Stream and almost Mediterranean-like sun. Here you can find plants that are not often found on the coastline, such as mimosa and tamarisk, thus giving it its nickname "Island of Mimosas". Yet the production of cognac has been historically discredited here and, in 30 years, the grape-growing surface has been reduced to half its former area. From 1936 to 1984, the island's distillers were the only ones authorised to use column stills (distilled only once). This land is nothing less than exceptional for enthusiasts able to appreciate these maritime cognacs originating from sandy soils. The harvest 1991 was the coldest of the decade. The total volume produced this year was less by 70% than the previous harvest (- 76% in Grande Champagne!).
